SIP Panel House: modular, innovative + sustainable

SIP Panel House: modular, innovative + sustainable | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it
Using Structural Insulated Panels as a modular unit, this house is the result of extensive research by two young architects into prefabrication of low-cost housing and self-customisation.

 

The SIP Panel House from  Having decided to create a constructive system from components already available in the construction market, Alejandro Soffia & Gabriel Rudolphy took the Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) catalogue and studied its simple topology to define minimum spatial modules, which when multiplied and related could be used to build structures.

The house is conceived as an attempt to rationalise the construction material and achieve maximum optimisation of its structural and dimensional qualities. The totality of the house was configured with two kinds of components: wall panels and split-level panels. In just 10 days, 71 wall panels and 40 split-level panels were built with a negligible loss of material...

Solhuset Climate-Friendly Nursery by Christensen & Co. Architects

Solhuset Climate-Friendly Nursery by Christensen & Co. Architects | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it
Designed by Christensen & Co. Architects for kindergarten age and younger, this solar-powered, net-positive energy building is sited on a triangular lot in Copenhagen's bedroom community of Hoersholm.

The roof's design was ideal for mounting the photovoltaic and solar thermal panels, which are positioned to capture the most light possible. With 2,691 square feet of PV panels, "the building produces 0.75 kWh per square foot more than it consumes each year," according to Treldal, exporting energy during the eight months of the year with the most sunlight, and importing it during the four months of shorter days. A green roof of sedum is interspersed among the panels, cooling the building, the panels, and controlling storm-water runoff. High-performance wood, compressed to ensure hardness, clads the exterior...

Tiltpanel House by Irving Smith Jack Architects

Tiltpanel House by Irving Smith Jack Architects | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

The Tiltpanel House is a durable, cost efficient and thermally sustainable house in Nelson, New Zealand, bordered by a forest reserve and overlooking Tasman Bay.

It was developed using a commercial approach to fabricating buildings with preformed insulated concrete panels. The industrial structure was then domesticated with applied layering of texture and light to soften and warm as a family home...

Oficina Vidre Negre

Oficina Vidre Negre | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

Oficina Vidre Negre was born as a contemporary sculpture, a symbol of a dynamic and continuous development...

In a context of peripheral node of the motorway, the building is set within a park, planted with native species, in which a sort of town square accompanied to the entrance.
The dynamism of the client is shown in architecture, volume changing, a prism completely covered in black glass faceted and integrated photovoltaic panels...
